I like this photo ron. It's simply beautiful, I love painting effects. can you share what effects did you do here? Thanks ~christine~ #3116561

Ron Jones level-classic 8/2/2006 5:57:04 PM

Sure, Christine,
I placed the the main image without the sheep over a close up of a moss covered stone. I blended it using "hard light." I ran a dispacement map on it: Filter/distort/displacement map. I then added the sheep and blended them in with an adjustment layer. Summery of the technique is in Caplin's How To Cheat In Photoshop. #3116640

Mary Christine P. Villanueva level-classic 8/5/2006 6:26:18 PM

Thanks for the info ron! I will try doing it and hope to get the same effect :-) #3129115
